This is my mom slaving away over a hot dutch oven of oil frying up hush puppies. See that red bowl of mixture? Well each hush puppy is about a tablespoon or so of batter and she made two of those full. There were only about 10 left over! They really are that good.
This is Jason supervising the pig. He built this cooker himself and hauls it all over cooking for people. He is quite awesome at it and has become skilled at southern BBQ sauce. This is different then the regular sauce you can buy at the store. It is mostly vinegar and can be very spicy. The boys all like to drown their pig in it but I prefer just a little. My personal favorite is a well cooked piece of skin with a good layer of crispy fat on the back of it; Good stuff!
Dancing with Barry was one of the best parts of the evening. As you might imagine we don't get out real often for time with just the two of us and this was especially sweet for me. He really is a wonderful husband.
Charlie spent some time twirling Cameron around the dance floor. I think most of the parents spent more time dancing with their children then they did with their spouse but it was still good times just being together. In case you are wondering that is indeed the head of a pig being BBQ'd!
I was trying to dance with my own husband but kept getting interrupted by my jealous little Kerri so I spent a few songs swaying with her so she would consent to letting Barry have "his turn".
